Book Reviews Section
Studia Logica publishes reviews of books and other material within the aim and scope of the journal. 

Studia Logica encourages authors and publishers to send, for review, copies of books and other published material to the reviews editors at the address stated in the contact section below.


This site includes information for authors, publishers and reviewers as to the reviews procedure, how to contact the reviews section, titles currently under review, titles intended to be reviewed and titles already reviewed.

Authors or publishers should send the material intended for review to the reviews section. The reviews section will then find a suitable reviewer(s).

The review should be completed within about 6 months after receipt of the material, and to compensate reviewers for their efforts the reviewers get to keep the reviewed material. Each review should vary between 4 to 6 pages in length and provide the reader with some insights into the contents of the book, the intended audience, and the reviewer's opinion of the book.

Once the review is published the reviews section will forward the review to the authors or publishers.

Studia Logica - An International Journal for Symbolic Logic covers contemporary formal logic and its applications and relations to other disciplines. These include artificial intelligence, informatics, cognitive science, philosophy of science, and the philosophy of language. However this list is not exhaustive, moreover, the range of applications, comparisons and sources of inspiration is open and evolves over time.

Studia Logica is published by Springer Verlag.
